The obverse of 1934 $500 Federal Reserve Notes features an effigy of President William McKinley. President McKinley was the last American president to have served in the US Civil War. He entered the Civil War fighting on behalf of the Union as an enlisted soldier, and by wars end he held the rank of brevet major.


On the reverse of the 1934 $500 Federal Reserve Note are several notations of the denomination of the note. The four corners feature notations of 500, with the numeric value also present across the center of the note. Other notations include THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS.


The 1934 Series redesign removed the image of John Marshall from the obverse and a vignette of Desoto Discovering the Mississippi from the reverse. The redesign brought the images found on the bills in this listing. This was the final time the $500 Federal Reserve was redesigned. In July 1969, the United States began to remove these notes from circulation.
